I’ll be attending to the State of the Map Conference in my home country of Spain this July, I’ll be bringing a great demo ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap coming out of the Prototype Labs created by Thomas Emge as a proof of concept.

I’ll be showing around the Open Street Map http://www.openstreetmap.org/ implementation to consume and edit free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants to see it. The tools for ArcMap 10 will be available from ESRI as an Open Source project. Now you’ll be able to consume Open Street Maps and use the tools in ArcMap 10 for your editing and analyzing geographic information. I don’t have the timeline or the details, a little too early for those details just yet. Keep an eye to this blog or more important the ESRI Prototype Lab blog where innovations are being created right now.

Anybody can edit and consume OSM, for this reason, this approached is great and very welcome in an event of emergency. Volunteer found Open Street Maps extremely useful in Haiti.

I’m personally looking forward the presentation from Charles Kennelly (ESRI UK) on problems with metadata on Saturday 10th at 4:30 PM UTC+1

If you want to contact me around the conference or you would like me to demo the ArcMap 10 Extension of the Open Street Map, the best way is sending me and email or I’ll be watching my twitter account http://twitter.com/alpascual and I’ll be available at the conference, just look for me.

The Conference HashTag is: @sotm10  http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%23sotm10

If you new at the conference, some information about State Of The Map 2010

The 4th Annual International OpenStreetMap Conference Girona, Spain, July 9th – 11th, 2010

What’s State of the Map?

The State of the Map is the world’s leading OpenStreetMap community event. Join participants from all around the world in Girona from July 9th – 11th to hear talks, participate in workshops and hang out with OpenStreetMappers from around the world. If you are involved with any aspect of OpenStreetMap from mapping to coding to campaigning, or if you want to hear more from the global mapping movement that is changing the way maps are made and used, the State of the Map is for you.

Hope I’ll see you there

Cheers
